27 years old, USCF rating 1726. Personal best around 2100 blitz on ICC and Playchess. Around 1800 on FICS (handle: dumbgai). Inactive in OTB competition since 2011.

Beaten a handful of IMs online (mostly through flagging).

If anything I write on these pages offends you, feel free to hand me a beating on FICS.

My opening repertoire: 1. e4 as white, 1. e4 e5 and 1. d4 d5 as black.

Favorite players: Kramnik, Morozevich, Hou Yifan, Wei Yi, and of course Carlsen. Least favorite: anyone who acts like a classless jerk, meaning Topalov, Mamedyarov, and Nakamura. Also, Leko, who really should be a checkers (or tic-tac-toe) player.

   Oct-24-14 Kasimdzhanov vs Jobava, 2014
dumbgai: <This lack of preparation is shocking for someone who had been such a vital part of Anand's team as a second for so many years.> It's not like Anand has faced any opponent that plays the French in his WC matches.

dumbgai: <Play every game to move 20 or 25, then have a committee of GMs judge the position as a white win, a black win, or a draw. We know the game's decided by that point. They could use Rybka for help.> Why wait until move 20 or 25? If the opening is really all that counts, we just ...

dumbgai: Maybe he should accuse Andreikin of cheating with a computer. Only Stockfish could win this endgame for black, right?

dumbgai: What's with Indian players making up half the field? I know it's customary for the host nation to have more entries into international events, but this is ridiculous.

dumbgai: Come on guys, everyone on CG knows that <jphamlore> is the resident opening junkie. Let him say what he will about the Gruenfeld (or any other opening).
   Sep-24-14 A Karklins vs Kavalek, 1973 (replies)
dumbgai: I remember in the 90s I found a copy of the 1973 US Championship tournament book at the library, and this was one of the games that I looked at (admittedly, because it had a diagram). The author gave Karklins' 55. Qe4 three question marks (???), meaning he probably thought that ...

dumbgai: <If I was Caruana, I wouldn't participate in the Grand Prix cycle at all. What's the point of shedding rating points in a shambolically run cycle of FIDE tournaments, played in questionable venues for a lower prize fund when he can play in exclusive top tournaments with high ...
   Sep-03-14 Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2014 (replies)
dumbgai: The appropriate thing to do if your opponent REALLY refuses to resign is to under-promote 4 knights. I don't mind when my opponents drag games out, it just lets me enjoy my winning position for longer.
